A few small things from the past….

In the museum and art gallery in St Albans old Town Hall, I was rather taken with this motley collection of old things – from old milk bottles, milk powder tins, cigarette cards etc:




  1. Looks like the contents of my family dustbin from the late 1950s!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. From a time when there was still use for a kitchen!

  3. Just the other day. I might still have some of those πŸ˜ƒ

  4. Nicely captured Sue. Good old Carnation!

  5. The bone looks a bit odd in there. Or was it for soup perhaps? πŸ€”

  6. oh Carnation milk. I remember that my mother bought some. Here in Paris, I can not find one. There are “online” grocery stores on the internet, but it’s horribly expensive.

  7. Fun – but recognize none of these…I guess you have to be English?
